Creating Waves of Awareness

Hypotension can be more fatal in certain circumstances than even hypertension. So we homoeopaths have to be very cautious in cases of severe hypotension.

Causes of Hypotension differ depending on whether symptoms are acute or chronic.

The most common causes of acute orthostatic hypotension include
  • Hypovolemia
  • Allopathic Drugs
  • Prolonged bed rest
  • Adrenal insufficiency
The most common causes of chronic orthostatic hypotension include
  • Age-related changes in BP regulation
  • Allopathic Drugs
  • Autonomic dysfunction

Postprandial orthostatic hypotension is also common. It may be caused by the insulin response to high-carbohydrate meals and blood pooling in the GI tract; this condition is worsened by alcohol intake.

As all of us know, homoeopathy treats the person as a whole. It means that homeopathic treatment focuses on the patient as a person, as well as his pathological condition. Therefore homoeopathic medicines for cases of hypotension must be selected after a full individualising, full lab examination and case-analysis, which includes the medical history of the patient, physical and mental constitution etc.

The most commonly indicated homoeopathic medicines in low blood pressure are:

Carbo-veg, Phos, Sepia, Thyroidinum, Baryta-mur, Aconite, Aranea, Cactus, Curare, Gelsemium, Halo, Histamine, Lachesis, Lyco, Naja, Rauwolfia, Reserprine, Visc., Radium, Theridion, Oleander, Laurocrasis, Acid flour, Adrenalin, Ars alb, Aurum mur, Bartya carb, Bryonia, Crataegus, China, Conium, Ferrum met, lycopus, Nat mur, Pulsatilla.

Personally I am of the opinion that homeopathic therapeutic carries little value and we must select the remedy as per the rules stated above.


When I say Homeopathic therapeutics, I want to say that the normal tendency of claiming that the Aconite, Bryonia, Belladonna, China etc are medicines for fever is an Allopathic way of thinking. I don't believe in this. I am of the firm opinion, that each individual case as per totality will decide the medicine and not these suggested therapeutics. I hope it clarifies my stand.

I often see hypotensive patients keep on taking excess of salt to increase their BP. And, they continue the same even after they become hypertensive!

There is a similar mistake done by hypertensive group: Doctors often advice them to restrict the salt intake. Instead of restricting, they stop salt intake. What really happens is, they may suffer from hyponatremia!

Now a days, changebility in the BP is very common due to tubercular miasm. So, it is better suggest the patient to adjust the salt intake as per the blood pressure.
